    Hey RXaverius,

    I suggest you to follow the below steps to turn off the magnifier and check if it helps.

    • Go to “settings” and click on “ease of access”.
    • Then under the “magnifier” option “turn off” it.
    Or also you can press the keys “Windows+Esc” and the magnifier will be closed.

    For more information regarding magnifier refer to the below article and check if it helps.
